Opinion needed on speakers

Recommended Posts

InIt4theDough

Hello all,

 

I bought a 2000 sportster lx and it has 20 year old speakers in it. I’m not an audiophile and just looking to replace the aged speakers. What’s your $0.02 on these? Looking for a decent speaker on a budget (like everyone else).

Specs state they require a 5.4" cutout. Thats larger then typical.

That is because they are 6.5" - the OP's OEM speakers are 6" (at least from the factory).

As stated, a 5.4" cutout is larger then most typical 6.5" speakers, with 5.0" cutout being the norm.

I'm in the process of replacing my black JBL rear speakers to white ones, just 'cause...  and the cutout sizes seem to be all over the map.  Unlike wire colours, there appears to be be no EIA standard.

Yep, not standard, but 5" is the most common.

So are those speakers decent or no? Ha. I can always make my speaker holes a half inch bigger...

Well, for a boat I doubt it matters.  Pyle, JL, kenwood, etc. all similar.  Unless you want to spring for a set of Focal Utopias. ;)
